We'll do 6.9 miles and 2 passes over Kennesaw Mountain.

Please arrive by 7:45am.  We will start promptly at 8:00am

We are STARTING IN THE BACK OF THE OVERFLOW PARKING LOT, then going over Kennesaw to Burnt Hickory.  We'll have a short break at Burnt Hickory before retracing our steps and going over the mountain again, then past the Visitor's Center and back to our cars.

We will regroup at Burnt Hickory, the Visotor Center and again at the finish.  The goal is to complete the hike in 3 hours.  This will be about a 2.3 mph pace.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:

1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector

2) If you are not heading west after getting off of the Interstate you are going the wrong way.  You should be heading towards US 41 and downtown Marietta after getting off of I-75 onto the Canton Road Connector and see Kennesaw Mountain on your right.

3) You will be tempted to take the first exit off of the Canton Road Connector which is US 41, but do not take it.  Proceed over US 41 on a bridge staying on the Canton Road Connector.

4) After crossing US 41 take a right at the first redlight which is Church Street Extension.

5) You should cross railroad tracks soon.

6) Take a left onto Old 41 at the second redlight.  If you get to US 41 again, you have missed the turn onto Old 41 so turn around.

7)  Park in the overflow parking lot farther down the road on the left.
